Like, i need a DNS server( administration server where the user accounts and policies are created), i need a backup server, there should also be sql server for database , there should also be a web server and a proxy server also a mail server.

so my question is how shall i setup this servers.

shall i make one of the machines the root server (the DNS server )and
the second one the backup server + the web server and proxy server,
the third one the database server(the sql server) and

Two Domain Controllers with Active Directory Integrated DNS. You will need a DNS installed before you dcpromo your first member server so you should install DNS on the first member server you plan to make a Domain Controller. dcpromo a second memberserver so you have fault tolerence
for Active Directory and with active directory integrated DNS on both DC's you will have fault tolerence and replication for your DNS. The other servers can be member servers.
